USAID has supported the conservation of South Sudan’s wildlife, forests, and natural resources since before South Sudan’s independence. Programs have trained hundreds of park rangers, educated communities on the importance of wildlife protection, and helped resolve conflict over land use planning by balancing protection of wildlife with communities’ livelihoods needs. USAID will continue to support biodiversity conservation, aiming to strengthen local wildlife protection skills, reduce wildlife poaching, and improve natural resource management.
